About Me

Twenty years ago I asked a Tarot card reader what would I be doing when I was 50. She replied, “I see you doing something so wildly creative, it defies a job title.” Only recently did I realize that was a slick way of saying, “I have no idea of what you’ll be doing.” But that prediction kept me charging ahead to the fifties with zeal and anticipation. Now that the future is today, I’m ready for anything!

Playing Peeparazzi

PeeparazziIn the short time I was out filling waterers this morning, I saw no fewer than three photo– or videoworthy moments:
• young chickens drinking from a plastic wading pool filled with water, balanced on the edge with the poise of a synchronized swim team about to execute a move;
• more young chickens perched on the edges of a rope hammock, one of the birds successfully scaling a tie line to the tree trunk before flapping down to the ground;
• two young roosters in the throes of poultry puberty, chest-bumping each other.
I ran back in the house for my camera to capture the synchronized chickens. Of course, they had dispersed by the time I got back.
I'm getting more comfortable using my digital camera outdoors. But the photo subjects don't always cooperate.
I did manage to get a photo of the latest brood of chicks before they roundly turned their backs on me.
